InvisiCord, TeamSpeed & Escort X50

Hey all- wanted to post a follow-up on this setup. A little background:

Own an Escort 8500 X50 & Mike's Radar Mount. I came across http://www.invisicord.com a while back which looked promising (as I did not want to try and strip-back and tap into the very small wires of the homelink mirror), but he did not list the g35 as a car that he knew would work.

After he took the time to find these forums, register, post, and guarantee me my money back if it did not work, I was impressed enough to give it a shot.

After receiving the cable, I came to find out that the contacts were just too darn big to fit into the back of the plug in my coupe. I wrote it off as one of those "meh, oh well, would have been nice" type deals, and then a while later came across some others who had the same problem.

TeamSpeed promised to send us new cords with smaller/sharper contacts. Sure enough, a few days later I received the new cord and anxiously at 11pm (by flashlight!) I gave it a shot.

The new smaller & sharper contacts went in MUCH easier and the radar detector worked first try. I ordered the smallest cable available, I believe it's 6". It works and looks perfect, I could not be happier.

I noticed that the radar detector sometimes would "bounce" and the top of the detector would tap against the bottom plastic of the rearview mirror. I nabbed a small plastic adhesive "foot" from a recent external USB casing purchase and stuck it on the top of the radar detector. No more bouncing, no more tapping of plastic on plastic.

Order order order this if you have any of the detectors he supports. You will NOT be sorry I promise! Not only is the product wonderful, but the customer service/support is something I rarely see anymore.

Thanks TeamSpeed!

Great idea for cleaning up the look.

Seems likle something I might want to do, but which length cord did you go with and how do you mount your detector to the mirror?
Also if you have any pics that would really help.
This sounds like a cheap and clean option!

Thanks for your post!

As stated in the post, I ordered the 6" cord. And as stated in the post, I am using Mike's Radar mount. Do a search on this board and on my350z.com on "Mike" and "radar" and "mount" and you should find him.

I'll see if I can take a picture of it.

Wow, I just got back in to check in on the forum and I see this thread. Thanks alot for the kind words. I just run this hobby like I would like to see others run their products through these forums, you know the old addage "do unto others...".

I had alot of orders today, but nobody stated whether these were for the G35, so I cannot determine whether I need to send the smaller contacts or not. If so, please reply to my reply on the paypal payment email and tell me it is for the G35.

hey, if you can get your hands on some super cheap adhesive feet, that would really be nice to send with the cord. One of those "man, I would have never thought of that" kidna thing I sure didn't.
